Question DetailsAsked on 1/18/2012

I'm currently unemployed and trying to find a major medical insurance provider. Is there a rating service to help consumers screen?

Who can assist consumers seeking affordable, legitimate major medical health insurance for an individual? There is a plethora of on-line providers, willing to give out quotes. And once a quote is requested, the phone calls are unending. But the one I thought was legitimate, Home Healthcare by the AWA, would not release specifics unless the policy was pre-paid. I complied. When I received the hard copy via USPS, the policy covered very little. I had to become an AWA member at the cost of $114, the policy cost was $299. Since I rejected the policy, the $299 will be refunded, but I'm stuck with a AWA membership that is like the roadside service etc that I have with my car insurance. Now I'm leary. Is there a consumer protection service? A watchdog committee?

The service you are looking for is Angie's List. You can use it to find a well rated agent or broker and won't have to worry about being bombarded with a million calls.

As for you applying for insurance... Don't apply to companies you haven't heard of without much research. Homeland Healthcare is designed for people who don't qualify for major medical insurance... It's a limited medical indemnity plan and probably not what you're looking for.

There is an agency called NCQA, they rate health insurers and physicians based on standards of care. HEDIS is one of their measures. As a health care provider NCQA standards help make sure the interventions and incentives made drive the best care we know how to provide. is a website that might help you. Best of Luck to you finding a quality delivering plan. Be sure to speak frankly with your physicians about the cost of medication regimens and the impact on your ability to take medications as prescribed.

Your state has an Insurance Commissioner and they usually have a website that will be consumer friendly and help with some of the issues facing you in your state.

Click on your state and follow the links to answer your questions. Some sites will have online chats to answer your questions, phone numbers to get a direct response, and of course the FAQ section of "frequently asked questions."

Also, here is a brochure provided in the state I live in, but has great tips that are applicable for all states and consumers looking for fairness.

Good luck! Hope this helps! Remember your state agencies are there to help and guide... not just for after the fact problems.
